In this video, we’re going to talk about the side effects of gallbladder removal. You can live a long, healthy life without a gallbladder, but unfortunately, 40% of people who’ve had their gallbladder removed end up with persistent pain and symptoms for a year or more.

Some of the common symptoms associated with gallbladder removal include the following:
• Constipation
• Diarrhea
• Anal leakage
• Fullness under the right rib cage
• Right shoulder pain
• Collins’ sign pain

The gallbladder is an extension of the liver that holds and concentrates bile. Every time you eat, it contracts and releases bile into the small intestine. Bile begins to break down fat, allowing the pancreas to further break down fat by releasing an enzyme called lipase.

Bile is critical for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, E, D, and K, as well as essential fatty acids. Bile also helps you get rid of excess cholesterol.

A gallstone is a concentrated cholesterol stone that forms due to low bile. This is why bile salts are used as a remedy for gallstones.

If you’re low in bile salts, your liver will make more bile and cholesterol. Seventy-five percent of all the cholesterol in your body is made by your body. Only 25% of your cholesterol comes from the diet.

Here are some of the causes of bile deficiency:
• Estrogen (birth control pills, pregnancy)
• Stress
• Prednisone
• Diabetes
• High-carb diets
• High body weight
• Liver disease (fatty liver, cirrhosis, hepatitis)
• Low-fat diets
• PPIs
• Nutritional deficiencies
• Low melatonin

If you’ve had your gallbladder removed and you’re having symptoms, here are a few things that you can try:
•Gentle acupressure
•Bile salts after eating
•TUDCA for bile sludge
•Betaine hydrochloride to acidify the stomach
•Increase melatonin (infrared rays, improve sleep)
•Milk thistle, beets, dandelion greens, artichokes

If you have diarrhea, bile salts may worsen your problem. Follow a low-carb, moderate-fat, moderate-protein diet if you’re dealing with symptoms from gallbladder removal.
